Job Description:

What you do at AMD changes everything

At AMD, we push the boundaries of what is possible. We believe in changing the world for the better by driving innovation in high-performance computing, graphics, and visualization technologies - building blocks for gaming, immersive platforms, and the data center.

Developing great technology takes more than talent: it takes amazing people who understand collaboration, respect, and who will go the "extra mile" to achieve unthinkable results. It takes people who have the passion and desire to disrupt the status quo, push boundaries, deliver innovation, and change the world. If you have this type of passion, we invite you to take a look at the opportunities available to come join our team.

THE ROLE:

This engineer will utilize their technical expertise to assist in the verification of AMD's next-generation CPU microprocessors.

They will maintain and enhance existing verification test benches to test cache and system interface functionality, including DFT features such as MBIST. Work on related projects and/or assignments as needed, to meet team goals. Write and execute detailed test plans. Develop quality, timely and cost-effective solutions independently. Interface with architects and RTL designers. Be involved in all phases of the project from specification to working with silicon validation teams.

THE PERSON:

A successful person in this role would possess good written and communication skills and would be able to work in a collaborative team environment working with architects, RTL designers, physical-design and silicon validation teams.

KEY RESPONSIBILITIES:

  • Perform Functional and Design for Test feature verification of high-speed Microprocessor designs, including development of infrastructure, directed and random test suites at behavioral RTL and gate design levels across SoC, Core and block hierarchies.
  • Develop environments, infrastructure and test plans to accommodate both full chip and stand alone
  • block level verification and debug capabilities using simulation tools, debug tools and programming skills, based on in-depth understanding of the architecture and HDL/logical design of the microprocessor.
  • Participate in development of formal verification techniques.
  • Develop an automated regression infrastructure setup for functional verification of high-speed microprocessor designs.
  • Based on thorough understanding of the design architecture, develop, run and debug x86 assembly based directed tests and random exercisers to validate functionality and testability operation of the microprocessor design leveraging C/C++/Perl/assembly programming, logic design and simulation skill set.
  • Resolve all simulation discrepancies and assertion responses for both behavioral and gate level logic models.
  • Measure and analyze coverage terms, address exposed weaknesses to meet design/project quality objectives.
  • Develop infrastructure for pattern generation used in post silicon device validation and characterization.
  • When presented with post-silicon issues, replicate design responses using presilicon infrastructure and provide debug expertise to ensure complete validation and characterization success.
  • Drive project deliverables/dependencies with cross-discipline/site RTL, DFT and Implementation design teams along with product manufacturing teams.

PREFERRED EXPERIENCE:

  • Prior experience with verification techniques of microprocessors/ASIC designs desired but not required.
  • Demonstrated expertise with Verilog HDL.
  • Proven programming proficiency in x86 assembly, C/C++, Ruby and Perl languages
  • Strong logic simulation competence.
  • Demonstrated solid understanding of modern computer architecture

ACADEMIC CREDENTIALS:

  • MS in EE/CE
